It's Getting Better...

Election Year
Do you actually believe that ANY politician would tell you that things are bad during an election year? That's exactly what Obama is doing! He's not stupid!

You cannot believe the numbers cited showing that unemployment is getting better because of how they count the numbers. Do you actually believe that unemployment is going down? Look around! After three years of promises, are there really more jobs? The government stops counting those who have exhausted their unemployment benefits. They are still unemployed but don't get counted. What about the people who just give up and stop looking for work? They aren't counted either. When people are out-of-work, they are out for well over a year or two! That's NOT GOOD!!

Housing Market
Well the government saved the housing market with its bailouts to Freddie and Fannie. No they didn't, they just made things worse by their interfering. If the housing market were getting better, then we wouldn't be able to report the 5 states with the worst foreclosure rates. Here they are:

  • New York-They had a foreclosure rate of 4.6% in 2011. Their unemployment was 8%. Home prices declined 13.6%

  • Nevada-Their foreclosure rate in 2011 was 5.3%. Their unemployment rate was 12.6%. Home prices declined by a whopping 59.3%.

  • Illinois-Their foreclosure rate was 5.4% in 2011. Unemployment rate was 9.8% and home prices declined by 29% in 2011.

  • New Jersey-New Jersey's foreclosure rate was 6.4% in 2011. They had a 9% unemployment rate. Their home price change was a -22.6%.

  • Florida-Their foreclosure rate was 11.9% in 2011. Florida had an employment rate of 9.9% and a home price decline of 49% in 2011. Florida's foreclosure rate was the highest in the entire USA! Their mortgage delinquency rate is a staggering 17.4%. This number is getting worse as we speak.

The Spin
Obama is out there telling us all that things are getting better. Those figures say otherwise. He's busy trying to get re-elected so he can continue with his policies that are BAD for America. Sure, he's a nice guy and people like him, but look at his record!

We cannot allow Obama to remain in the White House for another four years because he will destroy America.
